Sherlock Holmes : Movie Review

Posted on: February 2, 2010

Time has changed, according to time our favorite characters also keep on changing.
Just like Sherlock Holmes, If you are great follower of Holmes and Read all his adventures then be prepared to see new Holmes.
He is not like the Holmes we read in books, who always wears coat, hat. This Holmes does not prefer to wear the hat , and coat. He prefer dirty clothes, fights with boxers and fighters and demonstrate his fighting skills, he is expert in shooting, love, romance and bla bla bla. What not changed is Holmes intelligence, his observation !

Okay, now coming to Watson, as Holmes says in “my dear Watson”. He also changed , but not much.
Irene Adler also changed a little bit, she is the one who has once outsmarted Holmes in the past,in ” A Scandal in Bohemia”.

Robert Downey Jr. is played the role of legendary character Sherlock Holmes.
Jude Law is played the role of Dr.Watson.
Rachel McAdams played the role of Irene Adler.

This film is not based on the any of the novels of Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle, but instead the characters ( Holmes, Watson and Irene Adler) are from the books of Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Overall a good movie not very good, because of the alternation made to Holmes character. I don’t know whether you like it or not, but I love to see the 80’s Holmes as described in the books or novels by Arthur Conan Doyle.

I give it : 3.5/5.

I find it a really entertaining movie.
Good story, and nice surprises here and there… good film 🙂

Yes.. It’s a good movie, though not like old holmes.. but still I enjoyed it.

I did not like this film so much. At times I felt the director tried too hard to be intelligent!
